The Southgate Band is a collaboration of top American and Irish musicians whose varied musical backgrounds combine to create a beautiful mix of traditional music styles. They are led by singer Emma Beaton of the high flying Boston based string band, Joy Kills Sorrow. Virtuoso fiddler Sean Regan (Sharon Shannon, Mike McGoldrick Band) and guitarist Colm O’Caoimh (Caladh Nua) provide a strong Irish connection that is rounded out by double bassist Andy Laking’s warm, contemporary undertones (Gráda, Fionn Regan).

Standing out in front of the show is the amazing Nic Gareiss, one of the world’s top step dancers. Nic has performed at over 1500 festivals and venues worldwide in a career spanning well over a decade, working with luminaries such as The Chieftains, Dervish and Bruce Molsky. “The most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene” - Boston Herald. “A leftfield tour-de-force with irresistible wow factor” - The Irish Times.

Press:

“The human epitome of the unbearable lightness of being... Gareiss is more fleet of foot than an Olympian sprinter and more buoyant than a helium-filled balloon... his restraint is palpable and freeform flight is inevitable.” - The Irish Times

“Emma Beaton is a truly gifted musician in many genres and on many instruments”. - Natalie Haas

“A veritable distillation of all that has always been wondrous about English Folk” - The Irish Times on Andy Laking’s music.

“Gareiss is a total joy to watch – music embodied in physique, gesture, movement and muscle; an eye-opener for the ear, as it were, such is the precision, detail and adventure of his sense of rhythm.” – Last Night’s Fun

“The nimble Gareiss called forth visions of Fred Astaire.” - The Boston Herald
